This 18th century Quito school papelera speaks to the skilled Andean craftsmen who have practiced and perfected the art of 'marqueteria' since the dawn of the colonial period. The accomplished marqueterian carver who crafted this document box used simple incising and scraping knifes on a blank cedar canvas to create the shallow trenches that would later accommodate conforming marquetry inlaid veneers. High quality hand forged hardware was designed to complement stylized marquetry blossoms, budding flowers land leafy vines that decorate the top and front panels in variegated hues of white cedar. Matching side panels of radiant light encircle pyrographic vignettes of Quito's colonial architecture and the silhouettes of a Quiteno cityscapes are represented on the face of three interior drawers.
Dimensions: 11 inches x 8 inches x 8 inches.
Condition notes: in overall good, original condition with a heavily patinated surface commensurate with age.
